A Completely Contact free way of donating unwanted household items from Donation to Collection
A simple process to reduce the amount of good reusable items, that inevitably end up in landfill.
“BAYSIDE CITY COUNCIL VICTORIA
LEADING THE WAY”
being the very FIRST Council in Australia to add this innovative strategy to their Waste and Recycling Pages
FOLLOW THEIR LEAD and make a real difference and positive step to reduce waste
Over 60 million tonnes of hard waste every year ,in Australia alone is destined for landfill.
This is very real and is potentially disastrous for the future of our planet.
The Waste Not! app giving people the opportunity to make a real difference
and alter these statistics by some very simple actions.
The majority of people overwhelmingly would prefer that items that they no longer need or want be of use to someone else.
Whether the reason be these items may no longer suit their decor, moving overseas, may not fit in a new home, no longer have a use for or simply downsizing, the reasons are endless.
Yet why do I see everywhere good reusable items in Booked Hard Waste Collections. So then began my research.
Advertising these items for sale or even for free comes with associated problems
and the end result is people feel they have no choice but to put them in a booked hard waste collection, why?
If for example you list these items for sale you are then faced with trying to agree on a suitable day and time for both yourself and the potential buyer,
then you have to wait at home for people to look at these items.
Then often the buyer may decide they don’t want it, run late, haggle on the price, reschedule etc
but equally as frustrating is giving your items away free.
Again you have to agree on a suitable day and time and often people are late, reschedule, don’t turn up at all or completely cease contact with you.
So after speaking with countless people which I have researched for a number of years
I finally worked out the number one reason why so many people put so many good reusable items in booked Hard Waste Collections
and the reason being
My idea eliminates all of the associated problems, if you are faced with things such as not having suitable transport to get these items to recycling facilities
or time restraints with work commitments, leisure activities, family commitments, etc which all adds to making this whole process very difficult.
The conclusion is I had to make the whole process Contact Free.
Then my idea was born,
It is simple to use and it’s Completely Free, Download it from the App or Google Play Store
